San Francisco Rock Project was born in June 2010, when a group of local families and teacher/musicians banded together to form a nonprofit music school. Thanks to countless hours logged by its many volunteers, a deeply talented, dedicated staff, and a hard-working and gifted group of students, Rock Project quickly established itself as the premier rock-based music school in the Bay Area.
Rock Project is proud to be a nonprofit corporation, with all proceeds going back into the program — for scholarships and tuition assistance, special performance opportunities for students, better equipment, and staff compensation.
The Lending Library
In May 2012, Rock Project joined forces with indie rock sensation tUnE-yArDs to raise money for a “lending library” of musical instruments for students. Any student enrolled in Rock Project can now “check out” guitars, basses and other instruments to take home and try out for a while. No strings attached! Rock Project is poised to launch other innovative new programs for its students over the coming months. So stay tuned! Sorry for the bad puns!
